durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft from the taproom. Pours black with a rich tan head. Nose is dark chocolate and mint. Taste is big time mint and big time chocolate, but they work so well together. Mint does not come across as sharp or intrusive as it sometimes can. Great beer, especially in 5oz-at-a-time pours.

marcus (7142) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle from City Beer. Pours dark brown with a tiny tan head and a strong mint aroma There is a rich chocolate and mint flavor with a little coffee and anise. Complex and tasty, but a little too much mint for me.

Ughsmash (7265) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2015
Draft. Poured near black with short-lived head. The aroma picked up sweet candied mint, cocoa, and coffee.. Really smelled like candy. The flavor found similar, though fairly cloying with the sweetness.. the mint worked. Heavy-bodied and a bit too sweet.. overall very tasty and interesting.

Well done! Draft at Mikkeller SF. Pours black, with a sticky foamy milk chocolate head that sticks to the glass. Huge aromas peppermint patty, dark chocolate, vanilla. Cooling on the palate, smooth oily stout. Awesome!

On tap at Øl Beercafe. Awesome place. Anyway, big, very thick body. Big notes of chocolate and mint. As it warms, more of the stout flavor comes through, but I actually enjoyed it slightly cooler. Reminded me of an Andes mint. If you like thin mints, you will might like this.

Poured a black color with a tan head, aromas of roast, light chocolate, some fresh mint, with some roast. Flavors matched the aromas light mint in the flavor, a little disappointing with the mint, left me wanting more. Nice chocolate and roast flavors, solid stout.

Dark black beautiful color. Nice dark head. Very small hint of mint. It may be losing some with age. Excellent flavor. Very good.

jredmond (5882) - Manhattan, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Draft at Pony Bar HK with Linh. Pours a deep black body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is chocolate, mint, spice and roast. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of roast and menthol coming through. A bit too earthy/dirt/ashy with a ton of roast in the finish. Bitter palate. Linh was really disappointed after remembering how much she liked that other Perennial...Abraxxas.
